Civilian History: 

1969 MK1 GB - time warp find. This late contract MK1 has just been found languishing in storage in the Netherlands since 1983 - it remains "as demobbed" following Auction at Munchen Gladbach in 1983
it has never been registered - on inspection it it 99.9% complete

The auction number is still on the seat as is the Army registration scribed on the Petrol tank - don't find them like this everyday.

just put it on the ramp at home - filled it with oil and 4  year old stale petrol and "Boom" fired up second kick!!!!! + all the electrics work too!!!!

My plan is to keep it in its current original army state, so that it stands as a fitting reminder and testament of how they were painted and used in service

it will remain stored for a while now until other projects are finished so could be a year or two.
